In the quest for reviews, a thorough look through Smashwords’ suggestions to authors led me to the following site:
Hundreds of reviewers are listed. Many include specific wants and don’t wants about the subjects and genres of books they will review. Some want only blood curdling mysteries. Others want anything but young adult or romance.
No one said, for example, that they would love to review a clean & sober recent historical (1996, a breakthrough year in mass communications) romantic novel categorizable as Latina fiction, with a strong female lead, around Catholic themes involving family and community, set in a small coastal village in Mexico, with conflict centered around misspent youth, t-boned love and a handful of bad-ass tourists.
Delightfully, interest has been generated. I am in contact with potential reviewers who are industry-recognized, and who are experienced at writing book reviews.
